Second Department Motions by Digital Copy Only

7.1.20 Second Department Motions by Digital Copy Only. By Administrative Order issued on July 1, 2020, the Second Department has amended its local rules of practice to omit the requirement that papers in relation to motions and original proceedings be filed in both digital and hard copy format. Rather, all such papers “shall be submitted in digital format, shall comply with the technical requirements for electronically filed documents (22 NYCRR Part 1245, Appendix A), shall be served on all parties in digital format, and shall be filed by uploading through the digital portal located on the home page of the Court’s website with proof of service.”
